Sarah Sanders swipes back at report she's planning to leave White House

Sarah Sanders'resignation

The tweet came shortly after CBS News said both Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah were reportedly planning to leave the White House, citing "sources inside the White House and close to the administration".

CBS also reported that more departures are expected soon.

In a style similar to how Sanders has dealt with the White House Press Corps, she tweeted the CBS News report was wrong.

Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to comment from the publication.


In an effort to address all the leaks emanating from the Trump administration, there are plans afoot to slowly whittle down the White House communications team (according to the latest batch of leaks).

However, Sanders disputed the story and said CBS never asked her if she was planning on leaving.

Several staffers have left the Trump administration over the last several months including Communications Director Hope Hicks; Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert; and National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton; and communications aide Steven Cheung.

Sanders has become the public face of the Trump administration since being promoted to press secretary following the resignation of Sean Spicer.
